Nottingham Forest look for their sixth league win in a row when they travel to Hull City on Saturday.

Two of the Championship's promotion contenders meet at the KC Stadium on Saturday when Hull City face Nottingham Forest.

Forest head to East Yorkshire as the form team in the division, having won their last five games in a row. This impressive run has taken Billy Davies's side into the top six for the first time in 2013. They saw off Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 at the City Ground last week.

Hull's 1-0 win at Burnley on Monday evening moved them back into second place ahead of Watford. Steve Bruce's side will be seeking the win against Forest to put pressure on Cardiff, whose lead at the top of the table has been cut to four points.

Hull boss Bruce has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game and he could name the same XI that won at Turf Moor. Jay Simpson may be in line to start after coming off the bench to set up Stephen Quinn's winning goal.

Davies is likely to be without striker Dexter Blackstock, who limped off with a hamstring injury against Wolves, so Darius Henderson could replace him. Defender Greg Halford could also return to the starting lineup.
